This ultra-popular salad is a twist on an old classic with edamame, mandarin oranges, and the BEST teriyaki dressing! Perfect for potlucks, parties, or laid back weeknight dinners!
1 16-ounce bag tri-color cole slaw (without dressing)
2 3-ounce package Asian noodles (like Ramen noodles), crushed, without seasoning packet
1 11-ounce can mandarin oranges (or 15-ounce if you love mandarin oranges)
1/2 cup edamame, cooked and shelled
1/4 cup green onion, diced
1/4 cup slivered almonds (or shaved)
1 cup teriyaki dressing (see below) OR if you’re short on time you can use a store-bought Asian sesame dressing, Kraft makes a [url:1]great one[/url]!
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (the thicker, the better! I love [url:2]this one[/url] by Kikkoman)
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar (may sub apple cider vinegar)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup oil (vegetable or canola)
Combine all ingredients (including dressing) in a large bowl and toss to combine. If using my teriyaki dressing recipe, simple whisk together all dressing ingredients first before pouring in with the other salad ingredients.
Serve immediately, or you can make it ahead and add the dressing just before serving. I really love to serve it after it’s been marinating in the fridge for a few hours, it softens the noodles a bit and the flavors really stand out!
